Every summer Nantwich police officers and PCSOs hold their annual fishing competition, aimed at young people aged between 10 and 16.
“It’s such a fantastic event”, said David Keane, Police & Crime Commissioner. “It’s a brilliant opportunity for the police to meet young people and break down those barriers that sometimes exist between the Constabulary and young folk.
“Public feedback during my recent consultation on police and crime priorities made it clear that they want to see police officers in their communities, talking and listening and better understanding the issues they face. It’s no different with young people – and in my new Police & Crime Plan I will be placing an emphasis on the Constabulary improving the way it engages with our different communities.
“I will be going along to Bay Moulton Border Fisheries to see for myself the great work the team does with young people in the town.”
The event is supported by Bay Moulton Border Fisheries, The Crown Hotel, Nantwich and Sainsbury’s Nantwich, and takes place today, 18 August at Bay Moulton Border Fisheries in Crewe.
